How do you define an artist who has never performed live, nor DJ'ed, nor ever had his photograph published and has never partaken in an interview? By the music of course. Jürgen Paape has proven this time and time again. How? Listen. Hear. Right. Now. Co-owner of Kompakt. The house's most elusive member remains the un-compromised, untainted shining star. And without ever being there….the one who launched the label with our first release "Triumph“, Jürgen Paape has left a legacy of music that is a true core of the sound which Kompakt's foundation is built on. We celebrate Jürgen Paape with “Kompilation”. A well deserved opportunity to hear Jürgen Paape for fans and newcomers - revived and remastered in a way that it plays through like a full length album. Some of the biggest moments of Kompakt over a decade history are here; the chorus of “So Weit Wie Noch Nie” remains timeless -there to send shivers of pleasure down your spine as we feel at the end of exhaustive end of a night at Total Confusion. “Take That” is an anthem for the unbuilt rock stadiums of tomorrow. The bona-fide hit that put him in the charts in Australia and Italy is here - “Come Into My Life (Radio Edit)” remains undeniably one of Kompakt's catchiest pop tracks ever. We also debut his brand new single “So Wird Die Zeit Gemacht” - which builds on his signature sound with the spirit and vitality of classic house and a truly demented vocal hook. In an unselfish act to support our Kompakt record store In Cologne, Jürgen Paape's “Kompilation” shall be available on 500 limited edition CD's found only in our store and through the record store's online shop - KOMPAKT.FM.

"Kompilation" shall be released on 17 December. “Kompilation” shall be released on January 10th, 2011 digitally.
Worüber soll man einen Musiker definieren der es seit nunmehr fast 20 Jahren immer wieder schafft musikalische Meilensteine in die Welt zu setzen, von dem es aber noch nie ein Foto oder ein Interview oder eine Live-performance gab. Natürlich über die Musik, welche im Idealfall immer für sich selbst sprechen sollte. Und das hat sie im Falle von KOMPAKT’s bestgehütetem Produzenten-Geheimnis, JÜRGEN PAAPE immer wieder auf das Überzeugendste getan. KOMPILATION ist wie der Name schon andeutet, eine exquisite Zusammenstellung, sowohl der besten JÜRGEN PAAPE Hits a la “So Weit Wie Noch Nie“ , “Take That“ oder “Ofterschwang“, aber auch einiger unveröffentlichter Überraschungs- Tracks. Brandneu ist das Stück “So Wird Die Zeit Gemacht“ welches als Maxiauskopplung, zusammen mit einem “Take That“ Live-Acid remix von Burger/Voigt als Rar 3 auf Vinyl erscheint.
